Delay in Production & Legal Issues
The sequel was announced way back in September 2017, with director Shankar re-uniting with Haasan after more than 20 years. There were many hurdles in the way of the film’s production since the shoot began, for example, the 2019 Indian General Election in which Haasan’s party also participated, and then the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, other than these reasons, one thing that severely affected the shoot and halted it was the incident that occurred in February 2020, during the shooting, when a crane carrying a heavy flash light fell on the sets, resulting in the deaths of three crew members, including an assistant director, and leaving more than 10 people injured.
After the incident, a case was filed against the film’s production studio, Lyca Productions, and Haasan and Shankar were also summoned by the CBI to investigate the accident during the shooting. Apart from that, other disputes like budget overruns and legal disputes due to other commitments of the cast and crew have also halted the shoot.

Finally, the makers of Indian 2 have announced the release date of the movie. In a special Twitter post, Kamal Hassan announced that the much-anticipated Indian 2 will be released in theaters soon. The makers of the film revealed that the intro to the film will be released on November 2.
